Review 'Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy' by Jodi Linton cowboys are worth getting dirty for.

In her latest adventure, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs discovers the local high school football coach passed out under the stadium bleachers wearing nothing but a smile…and his wife’s lingerie.

Things really start to get wild when she runs into the smoking hot Federal Marshal, Colt Larsen, snooping around the Granger’s house. The Marshal is on the hunt for the coach’s wife, who is nowhere to be found. Laney and Colt set out to find her, and quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas, Laney finds herself  up to her eyeballs in a case involving death threats, a ruthless motor cycle gang, a Mexican drug cartel, a kidnapping, and a shoot-out to rival the O.K. Corral.

In over their heads, Laney calls in the big guns—her very own Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson. But with the stakes higher than ever, will Gunner’s help be enough for Laney to get out of this case alive?

My Review:

When I read the first book in the Laney Briggs series I was immediately hooked to the country sheriff and her sexy cowboy man. Soon after finishing ‘Pretty Reckless’ I joined the Facebook Street Team, the Pink Pistol Readers and I got super excited for the next book in this great series by Jodi Linton. When I received the ARC of ‘Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy’ I was just sooo excited. And when I finally was able to start reading it I closed myself of from the outside world and put my do-not-disturb face on.

In ‘Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy’ we follow Laney Briggs again in her work as a deputy sheriff in a small Texas town. When Laney finds the local schools Coach drunk and wearing woman’s lingerie, she immediately knows something weird is going on. When a handsome Federal Marshal called Colt Larsen appears out of nowhere, Laney’s suspicions turn out true. Soon Laney is busy with a new case, but all she really wants to do is spend time with her own sexy cowboy Gunner. But since Gunner is busy with his own job, they don’t get to spend much time together. But the times they do spend together are smoking hot and full of passion.

Well, where should I start... Just like ‘Pretty Reckless’ this book is amazing, fun, sexy and full of action (and not only the sheriff kind of action). I really loved reading about Laney and the way she does her job. This series is just the perfect blend between romance and detective/mystery and I love it all the way. Laney doesn’t listen to what other people tell her and especially when people tell her how to do her job she isn’t afraid to speak her mind.
And well Gunner… There can never be enough Gunner in a book. I love the sexy cowboy. And I love the relationship between Laney and Gunner. They are just so passionate and they are clearly crazy about each other.

The one downfall about this book.. It was way too short! I couldn’t believe how fast I finished reading it. This book should be a thousand pages big. There should be many tiny letters so that there would be much more to read on a page. Boy… I just love this series. Jodi Linton, you did another exceptional good job if you ask me.

So if you’re a Laney Briggs virgin (I can’t imagine) I would advise you to get ‘Pretty Reckless’ right now. And if you read the first book.. ‘Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy’ is coming out August 18th.  Get ready ;) 

Check out my earlier review of 'Pretty Reckless' the first book in the Laney Briggs series.  

About the Author:

Jodi Linton grew up across the street from a cow pasture, where she was more likely to be seen selling Kool-Aid in a Dixie cup at ten cents a pop, or inviting neighbors over to watch one of her plays staged on her father’s Bass boat.   
In 2001, she traded in the rednecks, cowboys, and mesquite trees of her hometown to chase destiny out west. After a few years of mucking it around with the roughnecks, dust storms, and droughts, she decided to dust off her boots and head home. With a History degree in one hand and a marriage license in the other, she followed her husband in 2006 to central Texas the heartland, fabulous Austin. 

After settling into the Texas Hill Country with her husband and two kids, she joined the Austin Romance Writers of America, and signed with The Belcastro Agency.  Today she can be found cozied up to the computer escaping into a quirky world of tall tales, sexy, tight jean wearing cowboys, and a protagonist with a sharp-tongue quick enough to hang any man out to dry.
